Maserati MC20 Unofficial Renderings Show Off Sleek Spider Variant
The Maserati MC20 is a surprising and stylish supercar revealed by the automaker earlier this month. It will come with a powerful V6, although Maserati has designed the new model to accommodate a fully electric powertrain as well, with small modifications. It will be available in coupe and convertible versions, but an ambitious artist on Behance.net decided to design a spider version of the supercar, and it fits.
The three images only change the situation of the car’s roof, although the final silhouette looks more like a Ferrari than a Maserati if you squint. The lost roof also changes the shape of the MC20 greenhouse. The roofline continues upward before arching and cascading down to the rear. This disappeared in the renderings of the MC20 Spider, changing the shape. It’s a subtle change, but one that interrupts the original car’s design lines, while opening up the svelte, tech-filled interior to the sky. Maserati spent over 2000 hours in the wind tunnel sculpting the final shape of the car.
Open top driving should be fun in the car as well. The gasoline version is equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged, dual-combustion V6. It produces a whopping 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 538 pound-feet of torque. Power comes through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that propels the supercar to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. The maximum speed is 323 km / h.
Maserati has not released details on the all-electric version. However, the Italian automaker promises a 2.8-second run from 0-62 mph, a top speed of 310 km / h (193 mph) and a range of 323 km (201 miles), although the American figure probably differs. The car is expected to go on sale in the United States next year with a starting price of $ 210,000. As of yet, Maserati has not laid out its plans for the car beyond the coupe, convertible and all-electric powertrain. Maybe an MC20 Spider version could join as well.
